April's Creative Challenge - In The Garden

Hello,and welcome to April's challenge, with a brand NEW prize!
At the moment it is a strange world we are living in, and we hope this will bring a bit of joy into your lives.
This month and for the next three months, we are giving YOU an opportunity to join our Creative Team for a month, and get to use The Artistic Stamper stamps, and be posted on this blog, and on social media. Come and create and be in it to win it!

This month the theme is In The Garden and can be interpreted any way you like, as long as it has rubber stamps on it.

To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge.

We will pick a winner early next month from the entries, so get your thinking caps on, bring out your inks and stamps, and join in!

In addition, you can enter the same challenge on Facebook just for fun.
To join us on just go to our new Facebook group, and send us a request to join.
For inspiration, this is some of team's  In the Garden creations.

I was messing around with some paperclay and ended up with a a scrappy bit left over, so I flattened it out in a scruffy manner!! and decided to stamp into it with one of the SKELETON LEAVES, there are five different sizes in this set, rangeing from huge to tiny, I love them, and I love the impression it left on the paperclay, a bit fossil like.

Artistic Stamper products used;

First I painted a square piece of card with green acrylic paint and embossed it with a background stamp and green embossing powder.
Next I stamped a selection of mushroom images and coloured them in with watercolours, then cut them out. I glued one layer of mushrooms to the background, then glued a strip of adhesive foam to the bottom of the it. I stuck another set of mushrooms to the foam strip, positioned the Tim Holtzpaperdoll and added some decorative moss.
Finally I glued the whole scene into a little wooden box.

We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.
We look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry. 
Have a Happy Creative Month 
Stay safe
